Default What's Your Favorite Song?

Since I'm always arguing with you guys I never get to make my own pointless thread. Besides, we need to lighten the mood a little 'cuz you guys are Sofa King grumpy!

First, some rules:
1) You only get one.
2) That's right, just one!
3) Reasons are welcome, but not required.

Big Empty by Stone Temple Pilots. I think all the parts match perfectly. There's not a single piece of the entire five+ minutes of that song I would change.

"I Got You Babe"

Sonny and Cher. It's got everything. Joy, peristance in the face of hardship, resolution.

Hey Bro,

You have to be more specific-
Song to LISTEN TO, song to PLAY, song to set a mood.... what!?!?!?!

To listen to- Freebird by Skynyrd
To play (on drums, and do vox) Hot For Teacher by Van Halen
To play (on harmonica) Whammer Jammer by J. Geils
To set a mood- Sharp Dressed Man by ZZ Top

Cheers,
C. P.

Impossible question, James!

I think Steely Dan's Babylon Sisters is pretty well the complete package - great lyrics, great playing, great groove, a wide range of rich timbres, beautiful production.

But Joni Mitchell's live version of Goodbye Pork Pie Hat with Jaco is also the complete package, and Michael Brecker's solo is to die for.

The Beatles, A Day in the Life is another complete package.

But Floyd's Great Gig in the Sky is the cheek tingles champ.

But Trane's Alabama has the most incredible moods.

But King Crimson's Epitaph has the most gorgeous vocals and sound.

And The Doors's The End totally knocks me out.

Jimi's Foxy Lady is the coolest rock and roll I've ever heard. Or was that The Who's I Can See for Miles?

Impossible!

If whatever god you believe in were to appear before you right now and tell you that he/she was going to eradicate the memory of every other song in history except one, what would it be?

It probably changes over time, but right now I'd have to say Tangled Up in Blue...both the Dylan version and the Jerry Garcia Band version.

Right now my favorite song is Blackfield's song "Blackfield" from their self titled album.

Hey Slandrew,


Just. Too. Weird.

I swear on my life- I just clicked (again) on this thread just now while listening to my MP3 player. Guess which song is playing right now on it?

Weird.

Cheers,
C. P.

LOL - eight exclamation marks means I have been well and truly called on this one ...

Would you believe that I have multiple personalities and each song is a single choice? This means my fave song depends on which personality is in charge at the time (I like to call each personality a "mood").

Here's my current personality's favourite: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3xJWxPE8G2c

I have tears rolling down my cheeks while watching and listening to this video. True!

i'll go with "Question 67 & 68" by Chicago Transit Authority if i have to pick only ONE song, just because that WHOLE album was an epiphany for me to get into the music business and go to music school...though i never finished because i went on to road to PLAY!!!

Regardless of my deep love for Prog. Rock/Metal.. I need to go back to Classic Rock.

John Lennon - Imagine

Far and away the most inspirational and meaningful song that I've ever heard.

One of the biggest underdog drummers I've ever seen. This guy is going to be famous in a few years. (what helps is he plays in a funk pop band called Bad Rabbits who's first album is being produced by Teddy Riley...)


He's one of the most creative drummers I've seen in today's music. If not the most creative.

Right now my favorite from our bands play list is "Let's get it on" by Marvin Gaye. I just love the groove of that song.

A song that always makes me smile and feel good is "Loves me like a rock" by Paul Simon

I too love that whole album. It was one that I was drumming to in the late 60's early 70's along with Iron Butterfly "In the Gadda Davida" the 17 minute version and all sides of Kiss Alive.

This may seem a bit obscure, But I couldn't live without David Sylvian, and the track would probably be Thalheim from Dead Bees On A Cake, he has a way of using music that really sets the mood for his lyrics in a way that I love.
